Hello -

I have a question regarding the tank set ups for green banana (Panchlora nivea) and porcelain roach (Gyna lurida) species. From what I can find online they both need some form of substrate (coco bark is typically recommended) and things to hide under (small cork bark or egg crates). What I cannot seem to find is any information about how to keep them from escaping the tanks.

I have hissing cockroaches and have zero trouble with them as long as I have a Vaseline barrier and a fine mesh top. I should also point out that I will be using 10 gal aquaria as tanks for these roaches. As I said, there is a fair amount of information about their cage set-ups online but not much in terms of escape "proofing" their enclosure. Any help anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
